Georges Bizet didn't live long enough to capitalize on his breakthrough operatic success, Carmen, nor did he leave a large legacy of other works. He did write one symphony as a conservatory student, studying under Charles Gounod, no less. It wasn't written with performance or publication in mind, and it got lost in a pile somewhere for decades, only to resurface for a premiere performance some  eighty years later. We'll hear the Symphony in C major as our featured work this Thursday.
